Discussion of the participation of minority women, both at state level and in cultural and religious practices. Worldwide, legislation such as gender quotas nor legal recognition given to religious law have benefitted minority women. The volume explores the relation in theory and practice between gender equality and multicultural feminism. The authors analyze different cases from Europe, Latin America, the Middle East and Africa regarding state law, customary law, religious law and indigenous law.

Queering Multiculturalism argues for group-specific rights for ethno-cultural minorities, but without ignoring the possibility that such rights may lead to ethnic chauvinism, balkanization, and the cultural marginalization of minorities-within-minorities, such as ethnic LGBT people.

The effect of Islam on Western Europe has been profound. Spektorowski and Elfersy argue that it has transformed European democratic values by inspiring an ultra-liberalism that now faces an ultra-conservative backlash. Questions of what to do about Muslim immigration, how to deal with burqas, how to deal with gender politics, have all been influenced by western democracies’ grappling with ideas of inclusion and most recently, exclusion. This book examines those forces and ultimately sees, not an unbridgeable gap, but a future in which Islam and European democracies are compatible, rich, and evolving.

The Oxford Handbook of Jurisdiction in International Law provides an authoritative and comprehensive analysis of the concept of jurisdiction in international law. Jurisdiction plays a fundamental role in international law, limiting the exercise of legal authority over international legal subjects. But despite its importance, the concept has remained, until now, underdeveloped. Discussions of jurisdiction in international law regularly refer to classic heads of jurisdiction based on territoriality or nationality, or use the SS Lotus decision of the Permanent Court of International Justice as a starting point. However, traditional understandings of jurisdiction are facing new challenges. Globalization has increased the need for jurisdiction to be applied extraterritorially, non-State forms of law provide new theoretical challenges and intersections between different forms of jurisdiction have become more intricate. This Handbook provides a necessary re-examination of the concept of jurisdiction in international law through a thematic analysis of its history, its contemporary application, and how it needs to adapt to encompass future developments in international law. It examines some of the most contentious elements of jurisdiction by considering how the concept is being applied in specific substantive and institutional settings.

European Multiculturalism Revisited analyses the alleged crises of the main 'models' of multicultural societies experienced by Europe since the end of World War II, based on research conducted by local scholars in the UK, Denmark, the Netherlands, Italy, France and Germany. Each chapter provides an historical account of how the model developed and was implemented in the country in question, followed by an in-depth analysis of the factors that have led to the claim that the model has failed. The questions being, Did it actually fail? And if it failed was it because of some intrinsic weaknesses or external circumstances? This volume is a groundbreaking contribution to a topic of vital contemporary importance.

Questions concerning whether and how the rights of minorities should be recognized in politics, and how to maintain and strengthen the bonds of community in ethnically diverse societies, are among the most salient and vexing on the political agenda of many societies. The growing diversity of national communities has generated pressures for new and more defensible forms of accommodating social cohesion and diversity. Although societies need to develop appropriate models of integration suited to their history, traditions, demographic composition, political requirements, and so on, their decisions should be guided by two general principles, namely respect for diversity and fostering a sense of common belonging and unity. This book states that it is possible to develop a defensible model for minority integration that reconciles unity and diversity. Studying the interaction between "old" and "new" minority groups and how they complement each other is a rather new task. So far these topics have been studied in isolation from each other. It is also an important task for future research in Europe where many states have established systems of "old" minority rights, but have not yet developed sound policies for the integration of "new" minority groups originating from recent migration. Old and New Minorities: Reconciling Diversity and Cohesion is a valuable resource for academics, scholars, students, and practitioners working on international human rights law, and the law and policy surrounding minorities, migrants, refugees, and all categories of non-citizens.

Most discussions of multiculturalism and group rights focus on the relationship between the minority and the majority. This volume advances our understanding of minority rights by focusing on conflicts that arise within minority groups and by examining the different sorts of responses that the liberal state might have to these conflicts. Groups around the world are increasingly successful in maintaining or winning autonomy. In light of this trend, a crucial question emerges: what happens to individuals within groups who find that their group discriminates against them? This volume brings together distinguished scholars who examine this question by weaving together normative political theory with case studies drawn from South Africa, the United States, India, Canada, and Britain. Classical liberalism, deliberative democracy, feminism, and associative democracy are among the theoretical frameworks used to offer solutions to the complex set of issues raised by minorities within minorities.

Celebrated by some as the source of political value and a key organizational principle, decried by others as treacherous and intellectually moribund, the nation- state and nationalism have endured despite the momentous upheavals of the 20th century. But in an age of increasing globalization and political fragmentation, does the nation-state have the relevance it once had? Do the novel challenges and historical developments we face demand that we rethink our understanding of national sovereignty and the principle of self-determination? Do we need to revise our conception of justice and democracy? And how can we, in such circumstances, best manage violent conflict arising from struggles between rival national projects and identities? This thought-provoking volume brings together leading international scholars within political science and theory to explore these questions.
